Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

In this Goddess Test novella, Kate Winters is the new queen of the underworld. Persephone has given up her immortality and left Hades, or Harry. He has chosen Kate as his new wife and given her six months to live her life before she officially becomes queen.

Her friend James has decided to take her on a trip to Greece for part of that six months. She is excited to be there but sad to be away from Harry. They have only been married for three days. Her attitude changes when James gets them lost in the woods. She is about ready to kill him when a strange man shows up calling himself Lux. He and James seem to know each other. Kate has no clue what is really going on but she is about to be stuck in the middle.

Lux and his brother Casey escaped the underworld and are being hunted by Harry, Walter and the council. Kate learns the story and starts seeing the council for who and what it is. Her views are shattered and she is unsure if she can continue down this path she was set upon.

This story was just okay for me. There wasn’t a lot of background information on Kate or why Persephone left. I also wondered about the name changes for the gods. It didn’t make any sense why Zeus was now Walter.

The chase that Lux and Casey tried to escape was face paced, which kept you reading. I also liked Kate after she started seeing the truth about the gods she had aligned herself with. She has spunk and basically told Zeus off. Gotta love her. The author made Hades into a compassionate god instead of what you normally think of him. So that was a nice change. He chose his new wife before duty. A very nice twist that was added. I give this book a 3 out of 5.
